Curvature has sold pre-owned equipment to more than 15,000 organizations, spanning Fortune 500 companies, small- and mid-sized businesses, telecommunications service providers, financial institutions, government entities, educational institutions and healthcare organizations. Worldwide, Curvature’s largest vertical segments are telecommunications and technology integrators. Most of the equipment, including deployments in carrier networks where uptime is essential, is used in production environments. While some organizations buy equipment from Curvature for sparing, testing and disaster recovery applications, the majority use the equipment to support front-line service and network expansions. In fact, a recent survey of 400 Curvature customers found that almost 80 percent of purchases were for production network use followed by 66 percent implemented for network expansion projects.
